We are lucky to have a loyal band of amazing volunteers who help us carry out our important work in the Irish Australian community, but we are always on the lookout for more!
Examples of how volunteers help us throughout the year:
Tutor students at our Senior Surfers computer class
Visit seniors in nursing homes and in hospitals
Assist with the administration of the Irish Support Agency’s office
Man the tea tent at the Sydney’s St Patrick’s Day festival
Set up, serve and clean up at our Senior’s Christmas lunch
Hold bucket collections and sell raffle tickets
We don’t need qualifications or experience, just a passion and enthusiasm to help. If you’d like to volunteer your time to help us make a difference at one, or several, of our many events and fund-raisers throughout the year, click here to express your interest.
If you are a provider of professional services that could be of assistance to our clients or the administration of the organisation, we would love to hear from you. Please complete this questionnaire too.
current volunteer opportunities
Can you volunteer an hour or two each week to brighten the day of an isolated Irish senior in our community? Our befriending volunteers are hard at work visiting seniors to ensure that they have a social support who can share news and events on whats happening in Australia and Ireland. They also assess any other needs of their 'friend' and pass over to our Outreach Worker as necessary.
We are searching for a rotation of volunteers to help us prepare and serve lunch at our fortnightly seniors drop in. It is a great way to support our team and enjoy the craic with our fantastic bunch of seniors. We will reimburse you for your time in tea and sandwiches!
The group meets every fortnight on a Wednesday, you don't need to commit to every fortnight, an extra set of helping hands when you can is all we need.
